  • EuroPython Conference

    Latest News EuroPython Conference READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ GEM’s Michele Simionato presented ‘Lessons Learned from Parallel Programming’ during the 2017 Conference on July 14 held in Rimini, Italy. He was joined by IT Team members ­ Paolo Tormene and Armando Scarpati in the week long event that featured five parallel tracks covering more than 200 sessions and attended by hundreds of developers across Europe. Michele, a Senior Software Developer at GEM, shared his hard­-learned knowledge gained in several years of parallel programming covering performance and ways to measure it; memory usage; data transfer and ways to reduce data transfer time; and how to debug parallel programs and useful libraries. He also shared practical examples both in enterprise and scientific programming (importing CSV files in a database and numerical simulations respectively). The initial part of the talk was pedagogical, advocating the convenience of parallel programming in a small, single machine environment; while the second part focused more on advanced programming discussing a few things to know when writing parallel programs for medium­ sized clusters. EuroPython is the largest Python conference in Europe organized by the EuroPython Workgroups (WGs), reporting directly to the EuroPython Society Board. The conference series was started in 2002 in Charleroi, Belgium and considered to be the first major Python conference run entirely by volunteers. GALLERY No images found. RELATED CONTENTS 1/0

  • TREQ OpenQuake Online Training: Earthquake Scenarios - Ground Motion Fields

    Latest News TREQ OpenQuake Online Training: Earthquake Scenarios - Ground Motion Fields READ MORE Photo caption: ​ GALLERY RELATED CONTENTS RELATED CONTENTS ​ The GEM TREQ project team successfully conducted its full OpenQuake online training on September 18th after a series of pilot activities over the last two months. Participants from Argentina, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, Dominican Republic, Mexico and El Salvador participated in the online training. Catalina Yepes and Alejandro Calderon led and facilitated the first of two sessions for Module II – Part 1: Earthquake Scenarios - Ground Motion Fields. Part 2 is scheduled on September 25th. The Ground Motion Fields session covered concepts in seismic faults, ground shaking intensity, ground motion models (GMPEs) and ground motion fields (GMFs). Facilitators presented and demonstrated how to model a fault rupture in OpenQuake, how to prepare the required input files, how to run various examples, and how to compare results based on the modelling assumptions. A participant from Costa Rica, who has attended previous workshops in person commented “…the workshops have been very good. The online modality has been better than expected. If the sessions are converted into video materials, they would be useful!”. The GEM Risk Team has produced complementary video materials for the workshops, already available on GEM’s YouTube Channe l and currently in use in courses at EAFIT University and University of El Salvador. As part of TREQ’s activities to promote the project, Alejandro Calderon gave a presentation on "Seismic risk assessment using free access tools" upon the invitation of the College of Civil Engineers of Tijuana, through their Center of Continuing Education in Civil Engineering. The webinar was held on August 17, 2020. You can find the presentation (in Spanish) in the following links: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=645872479660150&extid=JDZeCTimaTc3IOed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-n3dXevUSY&t=29s The OpenQuake online training initiative is part of the TREQ project activities, led by the GEM Foundation and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). It is designed to build the capacity of risk professionals with a diverse background and expertise, on earthquake risk assessment and the use of the basic features of the OpenQuake engine.

    CONTACT US The GEM Foundation (Global Earthquake Model) is located in the university town of Pavia, Italy, and is part of the Pavia Risk Centre - a knowledge-hub of organisations, people and institutions working on ‘understanding and managing risk’. The GEM Secretariat is hosted by the EUCENTRE - one of GEM's sponsors and core institutions of the Pavia Risk Centre. Map Directions Message us Medieval Tower, Pavia, Italy From the airport There are three international airports close to Pavia: Milan Linate - 50km, Milan Malpensa - 90km and Orio al Serio (Bergamo) -100km. Linate Airport By taxi - a taxi from Linate to Pavia will cost around €70. ​ By bus - there is a direct bus between Linate and the university terrain near the GEM Secretariat. There are only 5 daily departures (currently at 9.00 - 11.50 - 14.00 - 17.00 and 20.30). The bus service (called Pavia - Linate bus) departs from the airport at exit 7. The bus stops at Via Ferrata / Tangenziale [3/] bus stop. From there it's a five minute walk to the GEM Secretariat office. The bus goes on to Pavia's Central Train Station. If the timetable of the above bus does not match your arrival or departure, you can always travel via Milan. Use the Linate Express bus [25 minutes, direct] Take regular bus 73 to Milan's city centre (San Babila) and then take the metro to the Central Station. Once you arrive at Milano Centrale you can then take the train to Pavia (see below). Further information can be found on the Malpensa/Linate website. ​ Malpensa Airport There is no direct connection between Malpensa and the GEM Secretariat nor Pavia centre.
